Around 65 people recently attended a fascinating event hosted by one of HEDQF’s Founder Members BuroHappold Engineering at their London office, with a wide range of inspirational and knowledgeable speakers on the theme of designing for student mental health. This issue has risen to the top of the agenda of most universities in the UK and US, with huge increases in the number of reported cases of mental health problems in recent years.
Professor William Leahy, Vice-Provost (Students, Staff and Civic Engagement), Brunel University London commented:
“I attended the event and found it most informative and also most progressive. Hearing about the work so many colleagues are doing in this ‘mental health and the built environment’ space is heartening. This work, combined with the growing focus on kindness, thoughtfulness and mindfulness in our interactions at university is a real step forward”
This timely event will also inform the HEDQF Annual Conference in June 2019, where the focus will be on Health and Wellbeing.
